    As the title asks. Are you doing overtime or doing too little?
    What things should or shouldn't you do?
    When is it too late to leave it? (probably now)

    Oh well, whatever you're thinking could help others and maybe me

    Geronimo,
    It's got to that point where I'm starting to slowly panic and my brain keeps telling me that I'm going to fail........

    So far, I'm just revising stuff, taking an odd past paper here or there etc..

    I've just been making notes if I have some spare time, I'm not going to actually 'revise' them until easter holidays. My excuse is I don't want to peak too early haha

    Will the easter holidays be enough for your subjects?
    I feel that I might end up cramming in the last few weeks

    My memory is like a sieve so I might have some trouble.
    I have to go over things every couple of days to make sure I don't forget anything.

    I'm doing Maths, Physics and Business, what about yourself?

    My first exam is in June so I have around 5 weeks off straight to just revise, so for now I'm pacing myself by just making notes that I can learn from to practice papers. Last year for AS I did what I am doing now and it seemed to pay off, the Maths department make us do a past paper here and there, and so do Business, so it's just Physics that I'm not motivated to do any notes for yet, but as soon as I have finished them for the other subjects I'll start!

    I'm doing Physics, Chemistry and Biology at AS, I have been doing past paper questions making notes here and there but not as much as I should be doing. I recently had a Physics test and didn't do as well, since then I have been focusing on that the most.
